Michelle Mone is already being investigated by the House of Lords Commissioners for Standards for allegedly failing to declare an interest in PPE Medpro and lobbying for it to receive government contracts.

TODAY, RMT union baron Mick Lynch will meet with Transport Secretary Chris Grayling after MPs were warned that 'catastrophic' Christmas rail strikes would cost the hospitality industry £3BILLION in lost trade.
The militant RMT union is planning to disrupt millions of people's Christmas plans this week by calling for eight days of strikes in December and January. There will be four 48-hour walkouts between December 13 and January 7, forcing many revellers to cancel parties and shoppers to stay at home instead - and destroying events booked in hospitality venues.Overtime work will also be prohibited from December 18 to January 2, affecting services on Sundays and other key dates such as Christmas Eve, Boxing Day, and New Year's Eve, when many people travel to be with loved ones and friends.The carefully chosen dates will disrupt people going out to watch the World Cup's final week, as well as Friday December 16, known as 'Black Eye Friday' because it is the busiest night of drinking before Christmas, and the return to work and school after Christmas will also be hampered by four strike dates in January.UKHospitality, which represents Britain's pubs, clubs, and restaurants, told the BBC that their members could lose £3 billion in trade, adding that "after two Christmases lost to Covid, these are events and sales the industry can ill-afford to lose."It is critical that all parties come to the table to resolve this.' Today, Levelling-Up Secretary Michael Gove piled pressure on his cabinet colleague Mr Harper, emphasizing the importance of negotiations in avoiding strikes after the Transport Secretary said he would not negotiate with the rail union boss.

Viewers noticed how women's football star and refugee Nadia Nadim, 34, was part of ITV's coverage throughout Denmark's goalless draw with Tunisia on Tuesday night, but was no longer present after the final whistle (pictured left: Nadia during last night's broadcast while right, with her mother and inset, her touching tribute on Instagram).According to later reports in Danish media, she was struck from behind by a digger and died instantly.Nadia and her mother bravely fled Afghanistan when she was 11 years old, after hiding for three years after her Army general father was executed by the Taliban. In a touching tribute today, Nadia branded her mother a "warrior" who gave her life "twice" - once when she gave birth to her, and again when she risked everything to give her a safer life in Europe.ITV confirmed Nadia had left the studio early but initially refused to elaborate before the news broke on Wednesday afternoon; a spokesman later stated that 'everyone' at the broadcaster was supporting Nadia and thinking of her and her family.Hadima leaves four other daughters in addition to Nadia: Giti, Diana, Muskan, and Mujda.
When she discovered he had changed his identity to hide an appalling history of child sex attacks, a mother-of-five killed a paedophile, 77, for abusing her three sons.nbsp;
In 2014, Sarah Sands (right, with her sons) went to the home of Michael Pleasted, 77, in a nearby block of flats in east London and stabbed him eight times. Paedophile Pleasted (inset) had abused three of her children and other young boys on the estate and had already been convicted for a string of child abuse offences.Mrs Sands was convicted of manslaughter rather than murder for the killing because she was considered to have lost control, and she was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison. It was revealed that Pleasted, whom the family thought of as a friendly and helpful neighbor on their east London estate, had changed his name from Robin Moult to conceal a long history of offending against children.Mrs Sands is now campaigning for a tightening of the rules on sex offenders being allowed to change their names, which were not known when she was jailed because of their right to anonymity.Her brave sons have all turned 18 and waived their right to anonymity to support their mother. One of her sons, Bradley (second from right in left picture), admitted that when he learned she had stabbed Pleasted to death, he immediately thought 'hats off' to his mother.His twin siblings said they felt'safer' after he was killed.nbsp;Reece (third from right in left picture), then 11, said it was 'nice knowing he was dead.'Mrs Sands was also filmed sobbing outside the flat where she stabbed her victim, saying, 'He took everything from me,' and they all responded immediately and in unison: 'Oh yeah, definitely.'He ripped my family apart, and there are no words to describe how it eats you up from the inside.'
